The Knicks may have gone to Zion Williamson, but they are not losers, according to the Westgate SuperBook.
The Knicks, who finished in a league-the worst 17-65 record, kept a 16/1 option to win the NBA title in 2020, over Westgate drawn after the lottery. High probability comes from the belief that the Knicks will be a big burst in the free agency.
The big winner in the odds department is the Pelicans, who come from 300/1, the longest chance of any team, until 25/1 – Both odds like the Nuggets and Thunder.
The Grizzlies, who arrived at No. 2 pick, jump from 300/1 to 100/1. The Knicks must settle for No. 3 choices.
